The city from below: call for participation

March 27th-29th, 2009Baltimore http://cityfrombelow.orgThe city has emerged in recent years as an indispensable concept for many of the struggles for social justice we are all engaged in - it´s a place where theory meets practice, where the neighborhood organizes against global capitalism, where unequal divisions based on race and class can be mapped out block by block and contested, where the micropolitics of gender and sexual orientation are subject to metropolitan rearticulation, where every corner is a potential site of resistance and every vacant lot a commons to be reclaimed, and, most importantly, a place where all our diverse struggles and strategies have a chance of coming together into something greater.In cities everywhere, new social movements are coming into being, hidden histories are being uncovered, and unanticipated futures are being imagined and built - but so much of this knowledge remains, so to speak, at street-level. We need a space to gather and share our stories, our ideas and analysis, a space to come together and rethink the city from below. To that end, a group of activists and organizers, including Red Emma´s, the Indypendent Reader, campbaltimore, and the Campaign for a Better Baltimore are calling for a conference called The City From Below, to take place in Baltimore during the weekend of March 27,28,29, 2009 at 2640, a grassroots community center and events venue. Our intention to focus on the city first and foremost stems from our own organizing experience, and a recognition that the city is very often the terrain on which we fight, and which we should be fighting for. To take a particularly salient example from Baltimore, it is increasingly the case that labor struggles, especially in the service sector, need to confront not just unfair employers, but structurally disastrous municipal development policies. While the financial crisis plays out in the national news and in the spectacle of legislative action, it is at the level of the urban community where foreclosures can be directly challenged and the right to a non-capitalist relation to housing can be fought for. Our right to an autonomous culture, to our freedom to dissent, to public spaces and to public education all hinge increasingly on our relation to the cities in which we live and to the people and forces in control of them. And our cities offer some truly inspiring and creative examples of resistance - from the community garden to the neighborhood assembly. We are committed in organizing this conference to a horizontal framework of participation, ... more »

European City Seminars

Call for participants: European city seminars Bruxelles and Charleroi (Belgium), 13 - 16 March 2009.Chemnitz, Chomutov and the Czech-German borderland, 10 - 20 July 2009.It has been argued that there is something distinctive about a European City when compared to, for instance, an American city. The ´European City´as a sociological concept relies on the idea that cities in Europe have demonstrated their power and willingness to make interventions for the prevention of social conflict and the good of it inhabitants. Often, these interventions took place against the strict financial logic or current global trends. In the 19th century, sewage systems and street lighting were first installed into the poor neighbourhoods and local councils choose to house people who weren´t able to afford buying or renting property. The rise of the national (welfare) state to its strongest position somewhat reduced the power of cities, as many of the social institutions were transferred to the state. However, today, with pan-continental institutions and global economic forces coming to the fore, national governments have been weakened to a certain extent. The partial withdrawal of the welfare state again leaves local decision makers in an interesting position. What can and what will they do? How large is the space for independent policies? Are they forced to restructure the European City according to market principles, or will it become a corrective counter-force, which seeks to maintain social cohesion in places where the social fabric has been destroyed by economic changes? With these statements in mind, the websites European City and Plotki and the Centre Bruxellois d´action interculturelle invite researchers, journalists and artists to participate in a unique project that will deal with social cohesion in European cities affected by de-industrialization. Selected participants will participate at the following research seminars:A three day-long research seminar in Bruxelles and Charleroi (Belgium), 13 - 16 March 2009.A ten day-long ´travelling´ research seminar in the ´ex-industrial´ areas of the Czech Republic and Germany. Focusing mostly but not exclusively on the two old-industrial cities of Chomutov and Chemnitz, researches will present and discuss their own papers and participate in field research in Chemnitz, Chomutov and the Czech-German borderland, 10 - 12 July 2009.The programme is open for everyone living in a EU member state with good  knowledge of English.

MacArthur Global Migration and Human MobilityGrants

MacArthur Foundation Global Migration and Human Mobility Grantmaking GuidelinesPurpose: In 2006, the Foundation began grantmaking under a new Initiative on Global Migration and Human Mobility. Through this initiative, the Foundation will support a small number of institutions and projects, with the aim of advancing three main objectives: 1) to develop improved understandings of global migration through support of policy-relevant empirical research and improved sources of data on migrant flows; 2) to encourage better governance of migration at global, regional, and national levels; and 3) to stimulate new thinking on broader issues of global human mobility. Strategies: MacArthur will be providing a limited number of grants in the following areas:Governance of global migration;Migration and development; and,Re-conceptualizing global human mobility.Governance of global migrationThe Foundation will seek to contribute to an improvement in the norms and institutions for governance of international migration at the global, regional, and national levels. MacArthur funding will concentrate on four sub-themes: 1) principles, norms, and standards; 2) institutions; 3) data; and 4) national policy. Grantmaking in this area will be aimed at raising  the profile of global migration issues on national and international agendas, helping to develop norms and standards for the effective governance of migration, facilitating the inclusion of civil society voices in policy deliberations at the national and international levels, and disseminating migration research to policymakers at various levels of government.Migration and developmentThe Foundation will seek to foster better understandings and policy-relevant analyses of the relationship between the movement of people and economic development in sending and receiving countries. Under the broad rubric of migration and development, the Foundation will concentrate primarily on three main channels through which the global movement of people affects the economies of sending countries and receiving countries: 1) worker remittances; 2) labor mobility and concomitant brain drain (and "brain gain"); and 3) diaspora networks. In addition to examining migration from an international perspective, synergies are sought in MacArthur´s focus countries of Nigeria, Mexico, Russia, and India. Re-conceptualizing global human mobilityThe Foundation will also support a limited number of projects aimed at  re examining current ways of thinking about global human mobility. This includes work that re-evaluates the distinction between migration and other forms of population movement, and that offers new ways of conceptualizing the social, ... more »

Durham Antrhopologoy Journal - Call for papers

Beyond post-socialism?Resistance, creativity and change in the corners of EurasiaExtended submission deadline 31 December, 2008The second decade since the collapse of communist regimes in Central, East and South-East Europe is slowly coming to a close and it is now time to look back to the socio-cultural changes within the region in both more depth and breadth. Durham Anthropology Journal (DAJ) invites submissions dealing with the concept of  'post-socialism' in a broad sense. The aim of this monothematic journal issue is to critically reassess disciplinary, spatial, as well as thematic boundaries of the anthropology of post-socialism. The guest editor of DAJ for the issue is David Henig. Particularly, we welcome papers focused on: New research perspectives and themes How to approach various practices and continuities (e.g. anthropology of consumption, rhetoric culture as a means of approaching post-socialism, closer dialogue between anthropologists and historians) Spatiality of 'post-socialism' Does the concept of 'post-socialism' have any spatial boundaries? If so, what are the criteria for inclusion/exclusion ? Reflexivity of research How is anthropological knowledge on 'post-socialism' produced? How should fieldwork in post-socialist Eurasia be carried out? Submissions and queries send to David Henig: david.henig@durham.ac.uk Durham Anthropology Journal facilitates the dissemination of research ideas to the academic community at large for comment and criticism with a view towards improving them prior to submission to peer-reviewed publications. This may include experimental ways of disseminating ideas which capitalize on the multimedia potential of the internet. Thus the inclusion of video, audio, still image and meta data as well as data stored in databases or spreadsheets can be integrated with the text of the paper.

Joint Israeli – Palestinian Summer Programme on: Political Science and Middle East Studies

It is my pleasure to announce the official opening of registration to the Galillee College 2009 summer programmes (July 1st – August 4th ), http://www.galilcol.ac.il/page.asp?id=17 .On August 5th we concluded the third Galillee College summer programme. We had 30 participants interested in learning about the complicities and possibilities of the region. I know that we managed to sharpen and deepen their understanding and they left with far more knowledge about the ME in general and the roots and present situation of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in particular. NEVERTHELESS, we are constantly revising the programme to be even better, and have taken into consideration some of the important issues that were brought up in the concluding evaluation session, such as devoting more time for feelings; the young men and women experienced here situations that needed to be professionally addressed. As well as the knowledge, sights, voices and opinions, this course provided them with an emotional aspect that at times can be overwhelming.  This summer we had one group process meeting that was very good but because of the need expressed by the participants, we have decided that next year there will be three such meetings during the five weeks programme that will allow the participants to discuss the emotional aspects. With a Certified Group Facilitator they will have an opportunity to talk about their feelings in a free manner, to discuss some of the conflicts this course brings up in each of them and to give them an opportunity to listen to other group members. Another thing that was brought up and will be handled differently in the next summer programme is that the tours were too “touristy” and didn't have the right perspective for political science and ME studies students and professionals. Next year we will be looking for the right people to deliver the tours with the right perspective.  Students and faculty who are interested in the next year's summer programmes should contact the Programme Director – Ms. Shoshi Norman e-mail: snorman@galilcol.ac.il   Sincerely yours, Dr. Mahmoud Yazbak - Academic Director... more »
